Little Women

by Heather Chrisler
Based on the Novel by Louisa May Alcott
Directed by Andrea Young

Performance dates: January 18 – February 4 Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, Sundays at 2:00 pm

A four women adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel. Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy transform into women before our eyes and experience love, loss, and the ever glowing warmth of the March family hearth. While you are welcome to attend both nights of auditions, it is not required.

Characters being cast:

  • Little Woman 1: Jo
  • Little Woman 2: Meg, Professor Bhaer
  • Little Woman 3: Amy, John Brooke
  • Little Woman 4: Beth, Laurie

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Ages and genders are flexible, at the discretion of the director. Auditioners under 18 must have parental permission to participate if cast. All races, colors, sizes, genders, gender-identities and experience levels welcome! Some actors may play multiple roles. Although this IS an audition, we’re not judgmental, and we hope you feel welcome here and have a great time. If cast, you will be compensated by the roar of applause and the joy of being part of the Acrosstown family.

About the ART:

Founded in 1980, the ART develops new talent, plays, audiences and ideas while also celebrating and revivifying the great plays of the past. The ART provides a safe place where people of all ages, genders, races, and beliefs can create unsafe theater– thinking people’s theatre– theater that transforms.

We continually respect, and challenge:

  • ourselves as actors, designers, artists and visionaries to achieve more,
  • our audiences as living, thinking and feeling human beings to engage more,
  • other local theaters and arts organizations to collaborate more,

…and by doing so, help nurture and develop Gainesville, Florida into the center of arts and culture in North Central Florida.

As a 501c3 non-profit organization, the ART is especially dedicated to providing multi-cultural opportunities to the members of our community. The theater is open to all and presents experiences for which there are no other venues in the area. It is also entirely volunteer-staffed and operated.
